Last Friday I headed over to the House of Targ to celebrate a pop-punking anniversary as The Creeps celebrated their 15th year in action. Also on hand were Feral Trash and The Steve Adamyk Band.
Feral Trash played a very sharp set. I thought they were pretty good when I caught them at the Ottawa Explosion in 2013, but they've definiteyl stepped up their game. Here's bassman Jesse.
Eric Neurotic of Fear of Lipstick fame sings! First time I saw that band, they were opening for The Creeps at The Atomic Rooster back in 2009.
Rhythm section action with Ilisha!
The shouty bit!
And so on!
And finally a bit more of Ilisha.
Steve Adamyk noted that his pre-Million Dollar Marxists band had played a show with The Creeps ... egad, that is a long time ago!
They finished things off by segueing into a Cheap Trick cover.
The Creeps zipped into their birthday set; unfortunately I was filling none-to zippy myself (I spent a good chunk of the day digging post holes and was feeling on the tired side). Here's Skottie!
And here's Ian and Jordy!
Then I was actually starting to nod off, so I headed on home.
